WHO WE ARE
The Magic Valley Iris Society (MVIS) is a Non-Profit organization that was first formed in 1956. Our ongoing goal is to educate the public to the iris culture and to share the joy and beauty of growing irises.
A Message from President Steve Sayers:
Magic Valley Iris Society thanks Mike Sutton for making the iris meeting special with your presentation, door prizes and donating a projector for our meetings.
The Magic Valley Iris Society would like to thank everyone that attended our quarterly meeting today. Thank you to those that drove from the Boise and surrounding areas, our friends and partners in the Iris world from the Gem State Iris Society and The Pollen Daubers Iris Society.
We would like to give our specials thanks and gratitude to Mike Sutton for being our speaker today. It is rare that we get a chance to hear from someone with as much knowledge of Iris. We were blessed to share in his unique insights in growing Irises on the commercial level and the challenges of moving that business to another state while continuing to produce quality rhizomes for his eager customers around the world. It is clear that Irising is Mike’s life and he pours every ounce of himself into Hybridizing and growing some of the best irises in the world.
If you have not yet had the pleasure of seeing or growing some of Mike Sutton’s Irises, then you are missing out. I would strongly suggest visiting his Facebook site or his Website to see what you have been missing. Thanks again until next time Mike, it was a pleasure.
